Before the Eternal Silence is a time-based installation that uses the past eighteen years of environmental data to explore the belief that the destruction of human habitation is getting worse and worse, and emphasize the interconnected influence between humans and our environment.
The operation of the installation is inspired by the feedback loop system. The interaction of the data is based on speculating a scenario that the situation of our environment is getting worse as the days go on. These represent the increase of CO2, height of sea level, number of dust storms and the size of the hole of the ozone layer. The installation uses the rose in The Little Prince as the metaphor for humans and nature. The purpose of the project aims to call attention to the deterioration of nature and to remind the viewer of our place within the symbiotic relationship of the world around us.

“As a designer, most of my works are about nature. Nature has always marveled me that I choose science as my major during undergrad years. During these years, I spent a a lot of time focusing on horticulture research and landscape design. Afterwards, I found very fascinating that new technology provides ways to broaden people’s imaginations. I believe through the creation of its designer, technology can actually touch, provoke, entertain and engage our everyday life in an intriguing way.”
